HI,
Are you using this CPU, Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 Processor? If so what is your experience of it, in particular multi-tasking and gaming? I would probably get it tomorrow for next day delivery if I have some positive feedbacks. I know it's not a true 4 core CPU and I have done some research on comparison sites. It just lacks behind the AMD Phenom 11 Quad Core but much cheaper at the moment. Thanks

Have Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3Ghz which is not strictly comparable but works well for me

Runs cool and quiet and uses little power, especially compared to AMD

Multi tasks well for my purposes

I'm not into extreme gaming by any means but I would suggest that the processor you suggest is well up the charts and, for gaming, quite a lot will depend on the graphics card supplied

Thanks for the reply. Since not having any until now I did a bit more research and decided on the cheaper AMD Athlon IIx4 Quad Core. Hope I don't live to regret it.
